Ok, well you will pay for the damage right? You really don't realize how big the FJ is until you get stuck in something like that!

Re: Looks like my Transmission Leaking (thoughts?)

Got my FJ back last night! All warranty!!! Only thing that sucks is they had to drain my oil (just put royal purple in) but thats ok cause I didn't pay for NOTHING!!!

And the FJ felt like a tank after driving the Prius for 2 days.

Rear main seal sounds right, but I think we have timing belts not chains. Might want to get them to clarify, I would like to know myself.
We have a timing chain.

I’ve got a leak coming from somewhere near the end of my drive shaft, I just replaced the cv axle yesterday and the seal was leaking on that too but now there’s another leak coming from the rear end if the drive shaft...any ideas?

Sounds like you are describing a leaking rear pinion seal, area 1? Make sure its not instead leaking from area 2 this is much more common from what I've seen, which is where the third member bolts to the housing with a gasket between. Either way, its not a huge deal. Wash the area good and determine if the leak is bad enough to warrant fixing by checking after a few days of driving. Once you drive it heats up the fluid enough that it can seep out. The procedure to fix it should be the same for all Toyota 8" rear ends. Check out some youtube videos if you want to attempt it yourself, otherwise your mechanic will know how its done.
